LG will look to take on the budget end of the LTE enabled smartphone market with a new product called the F60.
The LG F60 smartphone will launch next week in choice of black and white casing with Android 4.4 KitKat and a host of LG custom apps and tools such as Gesture Shot and Touch and Shoot all displayed and controlled on a respectable 4.5-inch touchscreen with 800 x 480 resolution.
A Snapdragon CPU will run the device and is clocked at 2.2GHz (quad-core). 1GB of RAM is included with 4GB and 8GB models available depending on region. SD slot is included for raising the storage available (maximum card sizes TBC.)
The handset also features 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixels shooter for selfies and video calls and a 2,100 mAh battery providing adequate charge to compliment the features available. Single and dual SIM variants are said to be available and as mentioned at the start, one of the key features will be the LTE / 4G capability which is quite a treat on what the maker is billing as an ‘affordable’ handset.
Such premium features on a low-end handset go to show the term ‘budget’ should not be quite so looked down on as it once was and the LG F60 could carve a nice little spot in the market alongside the likes of the HTC One SV, Sony Xperia SP and Motorola Moto G all of which fall into a £150 – £200 price bracket.
